Let Peace Begin with Me
These words are great reminders of who's really responsible for peace. It's not the diplomats, world leaders or even the military, it is each one of us. There can be no peace if we are not peaceful. Remember these words the next time you want to lash out either with words of violence, violent gestures or physical attacks toward someone who has cut you off in traffic or expressed very firmly an opinion that is directly opposed to your opionion that is just as firm. How can we expect anyone to choose love and tolerance over anger and retaliation, if we can't?
